Special issue 15(1): "Childhood Career Development"

There has been consistent criticism that international literature on lifespan career development does not sufficiently consider the foundational stages of childhood career development. In recent decades there has been a greater focus on childhood career development, which has resulted in three substantive literature reviews, a special section of The Career Development Quarterly, and a book. There remains, however, a consensus that the literature on childhood career development remains fragmented, disparate and lacking in theory, research, practice and policy. It seems timely to consider recent developments in childhood career development.
